Wanted to start a separate thread for this because in past years it has been fun to answer questions and interact here on Pinside during the sale.

Q: Will [name of product not listed above] be part of the sale?
A: Sadly, no.
Q: Do I get candy?
A: Almost certainly (unless you order a single bulb or something, or you're outside the US).
Q: Will Nemo The Shop Dog be picking orders?
A: No. He will be sitting in the aisle, getting in our way.
Q: Is international shipping free if I spend $X?
A: Sadly, no.
Q: If I spend $398+, can I have two free gifts?
A: Sadly, no - gifts are limited.
Q: If I forget something in my order, do I have to pay for shipping again?
A: It depends. Your order confirmation will give you instructions for how to add to your order. If you haven't received a shipping confirmation, then we haven't packed your order yet and you are free to add to it. However, once you've received the shipping confirmation email, it's too late, and you'll need to place another order and pay for shipping again. Please follow this guideline so that your package is not delayed while we track you down and make you pony up for shipping.
Q: That sounded like a threat. Are you threatening me?
A: As of this time, we have yet to employ hired goons for any reason.
Q: Do you eat candy while working in the Comet Pinball office?
A: Ryan will occasionally partake, but only if he hasn't eaten in several hours. I've never seen Greg eat candy, as he is dissuaded by the picture of the aching cartoon tooth that lives in the candy bin. We're currently in possession of a full sized gummy pickle that has gone uneaten for weeks.
Q: Will you run out of some product during the sale?
A: Almost certainly (but hopefully only a handful of our 1000+ products). No matter how hard we try, we cannot seem to satisfy your appetite for bulbs!
Q: You ran out of Trough Lighting Kits, now what?
A: Buy a 10SMD strip of your choice, and then add a 12 inch Matrix wire. That's it! (All you're missing is the brightness adjuster, which are totally optional, but sadly it looks like we're going to run out of those).
Q: What does Retro mean?
A: We use the term "Retro" as a synonym for "same brightness as an incandescent bulb". It means nothing more, and nothing less. We have various styles/colors of Retro: bullets (shape/height of an incandescent), standard (shape/height of our standard sized bulbs), frosted, and clear.
Q: Are these real questions, or are you just making them up?
Q: Do you have any other sales during the year?
A: No. Anything is possible, but it hasn't happened thus far.
Q: Is "anything" *really* possible?
A: No. It's impossible to put a Cadillac up your nose, according to Steve Martin anyway.
Q: How much longer will this FAQ go on?
A: As long as it has to.
Q: Okay...so it sounds like you've run out of questions, haven't you?
